Below is a screen shot of a video in a series of videos that provide instruction on algebra topics. The videos are designed to make algebra more accessible for almost all students.

The presentations include the following instructional strategies

A focus on conceptual understanding (not just teaching steps)

Connection to prior knowledge

Breaking the math topics down into “bite-sized” pieces (chunking)

Color coding

Making the math relevant

The videos can be used in the following ways

Differentiation for students who need an alternative presentation

Initial instruction for students who missed instruction

Initial instruction as part of a class, e.g. flipping a classroom

For use when a substitute is covering a class

Intervention based instruction

Part of math support services (especially for special ed teachers who are not well versed in algebra topics)

Homework support

The videos include a link to the handouts used in the presentation. Additional practice worksheets will be included as well.

NOTE: this is only a sample, with more samples to follow. Please share feedback or ask questions.
